    Default Amazon Stingrays 750 Gallon Mega Reef

    Our 750 Mega Reef Build Journal 10-23-10

    After much anticipation we have finally got the Mega Reef under way.

    The main display system is 86" x 78" x 26". Approximately 750 gallons. Built by Bashsea, the custom tank is 3/4" acrylic, with a center overflow, dry channel, 4 drains and 3 returns.
    Plumbing: Returns are 1" schedule 40. Drains are 2" schedule 40.

    Powered by and external Madflo 3500 gph pump.

    Our protein skimmer is a Bashsea 10" x 28" Dual Beckett Skimmer.

    The refugium, also built by Bashsea, measures 60" x 30" x 17" and is approximately 120 gallons.

    Currently we have about 250 pounds of live rock, and approximately 1" of Caribsea Aragonite.

    We built the custom wood stand.

    We have not quite figured out what type of lighting that we want to do on this beast. It will be a reef, so there are so many ideas being tossed around. Can't wait till it's lit.

    Yes, we did had a big atlantic tang. But we don't have it anymore. We are going to hold off on putting anymore fish in there until we get more liverock and algae growing.

    I think it would look awesome with 4 pillars of some sort in each corner, well not directly in the corner but somewhere between the overflow and the corner.

    Wow, that's a monster tank!

    Four LumenArcs would cover that well...
